Dundee International Women’s Centre (DIWC) has an exciting online ESOL programme for 2021! These classes will increase your confidence in English and are free for DIWC members (membership costs just £6 for a year).
Classes are by email and Zoom. All you need is a mobile, tablet or computer with microphone, camera and internet connection, plus a working email address. Don’t worry if you’re new to Zoom, they will show you what to do – you don’t need to have lots of IT skills!
Tuesdays 1-2, from 12 January. For Pre-Intermediate students
A relaxed opportunity to practice and develop your speaking and listening skills while meeting new people and having fun too. Each week they’ll look at a different topic to do with living in Scotland. Bring your lunch!
Tuesdays 10-12, from 12 January. For Elementary students
Improve all aspects of your English – reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation – in this very friendly and welcoming class. All learning materials provided.
The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) programme is for those who want to learn and improve their English skills.
We run classes suitable for Beginners and Intermediate.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus situation, we are only running classes online. These take place weekday evenings from 7 pm to 9 pm.
We are working to hold ‘face-to-face’ classes again, but this may not be possible until the start of 2021.
If you are interested in joining our classes or registering an interest in joining our face-to-face classes in the future or have any questions please contact Neil Paterson email email@example.com
